East End

The East End of London

 

 

Politics

 

"Brick Lane is decent with everyone unless they interfere, but especially the north-east which includes Hackney and and Bethnal Green who come under the dominion of Shoreditch. Shoreditch, in turn, hates Whitechapel who hateshateshates the Docklands. Whitechapel's got influence in Spitalfields and down past Bishopsgate into the City proper, Shadwell probably overlaps into Docklands territory (with Wapping, etc.) It’s SE. vs. NE. and the two of them vs. the Docklands. Nobody's happy!"

Places to go

 

Ten Bells Pub's t'Vic page

The Ten Bells itself makes a corner of Fournier and Commercial Streets, and

has a warm interior panelled with dark woods, not to mention a rather

attractive tiled picture of 'Spitalfields in the Olden Time.' Tall

windows allow one to see out into the street. One can sit at the bar

or at any of the tables, some of which are built into booths by the

walls. Food is served.

The clientèle might be politely described as 'mixed,' and reflects

the many people of all walks of life who come to do business at the

nearby Spitalfields Market. Home base of the Royals gang.

 

Fleet Street's t'Vic page

(Coming soon: [St. Dunstan's])

"The presence in the street of a large number of taverns had much to do with this state of affairs and the defective means of policing the streets made it an easy matter for the lawless to perpetrate their daring deeds, and then to hurry off to the asylum of the contiguous byways and alleys, or to seek shelter in the wilds of Whitefriars,"

 

Eel Flat's t'Vic page (Child characters only.)

On a small street set back from the road is a large, collapsing house known only as Eel Flat. Three stories, though only two show above ground. Once it belonged a fine line of Lords, built by Christopher Wren; when this area was prosperous. This was before the cholera, before the fire and the plague, before the area was swallowed by the poverty that surrounded it. Now the great, once-beautiful house is sinking slowly back into the earth, a little more every year.

The place is a home to lostlings and runaway children and the top floor (the Gent's Club) is known by a few in-the-ken as the base for The Gents, a ragtag gang of urchins and beggar children.

 

Lambs of the Lord Workhouse's t'Vic page

Generally known as Lambs of the Lord (or simply 'the lamb-shed') due to the packed quarters it's inhabitants are kept in), this hulking, rickety warehouse serves as orphanage, workhouse, and free labour camp all rolled into one. The place is in the care of the Confederate American Colonel Brand.

 

Seven Dials' t'Vic page

"The Clock House on the Dials, now an apparently well-conducted pot-house, was in those days a hotbed of villainy. The king of pickpockets there held his nightly levee, and the half-dozen constables within view would no more have thought of entering it than they would the cage of a cobra." More on Seven Dials.

 

Pavilion Theatre's t'Vic page

Whitechapel-road. A large East-end theatre capable of holding considerably over 3,000 persons. Melodrama of a rough type, farce, pantomime, &c. NEAREST Railway Stations, Aldgate and Whitechapel; Omnibus Route, Whitechapel-road.
